Sequence: an exhibit with Levent Tuncer at Blank Space

Sequence Postcard Randall Stoltzfus and Levent Tuncer at Blank Space

I am happy to invite you to the art exhibit Sequence, at Blank Space Gallery on 25th Street in New York City. This exhibit will feature four of my paintings paired with the work of the talented Levent Tuncer . It has been fun to see the patterns in Mr. Tuncer’s and my own paintings interact in reproductions as this show has come together. There is a very real but not always obvious visual conversation happening. It’s about pattern and painting, certainly. But there is something more that is subtle and quiet, and not easily put into words. Stop by the opening on October 7th and tell us how you would say it.

From the press release:

The circular marks in Stoltzfus’ paintings are patterns that allow images to emerge and then disappear. This patterning resonates because it mirrors the physical structures of the eye in several ways. To expand these simple circular brushstrokes, he paints highlights and shadows around some of the circles. This creates a tromp l’oeil texture that can be touched only with the eye. Stoltzfus spikes some of his paint with raw pigment, while adding small amounts of gold leaf further develops its texture. Although the paintings are colored by the grit and glitz that surround him in Brooklyn, they remain ghosted by the rural Virginia landscape he knew as a child. …
Randall Stoltzfus has shown at exhibitions from Virginia to New York City and as far away as Pyeongtaek, South Korea. He studied at American University in Washington, DC and has since received a number of fellowships and artist in residence awards. He was Artist in Residence in Perugia, Italy, where his work is in the public collection at the Centro Pari Opportunitá. Two of his paintings were selected for the art bank program at the DC Council of the Arts & Humanities in Washington, DC. Some of Stoltzfus’ most recent exhibitions were at the Union Theological Seminary, Great Pop-Up Art Sale and LIMN Gallery respectively in Manhattan, Brooklyn and San Francisco.
